Hi! Happy summer to you all, dear readers. 😃
Orange is a color that I’ve grown to really appreciate. Not only is it a nice color in general, but it really pops against my skin tone, I’ve learned. That, and hot pink is a nice addition to it!
I’ve definitely been leaning towards oranges/hot pinks/corals, which really look nice against a summer tan. ❤️
On a hot summer evening, I feel especially drawn to meander out somewhere for either an iced beverage or something to eat, with a good book for company. Some mac n’ cheese at Panera was something I hadn’t had in a long time, so I went for that!
I firmly believe a book can be your best friend. For instance, the above book is one that, no matter how many times I read it, I always come back to and have ever since I first read it when I was 15. It’s one of those books that’ll stay with me throughout life.
My highly anticipated book line-up, after I finish reading Band of Brothers for the 5,000th time of course! Sunday evening, I went to Barnes & Noble not just to peruse the aisles this time, but to intentionally go and pick out these two books I really wanted.
Have I mentioned how much I love reading? 😉
Here’s a shot of my car, Jude, that I took the other night after a walk. It was the most gorgeous sunset I’ve seen in a while!
I love this time of year, and all-around, I’m feeling really good right now; my career life has changed and I’m now working as a freelance graphic designer. I lucked out and through a connection, I’m designing logos, graphics, etc. for a bay area business and rather than being in an office, I work remotely and do everything from my very own laptop! Like, I’VE BEEN DOING MY WORK AT STARBUCKS. Could I ask for anything better than that!!!!!!?
It’s the most ideal job I could possibly ask for, so I really hope this can be my new thing. One day at a time, as I always say!
Here’s to more beautiful summer sunsets. See ya!! ❤️
